Sony Smartwatch 3 now available for preorder through Verizon
The Sony Smartwatch 3 is the first Android Wear device from Sony, and it isn't just the first Android Wear device with built-in GPS. It is also the first Android Wear device that features an NFC chip for easy pairing with your smartphone. And, it is the first to use a 1.6-inch transflective LCD display, which should make it excellent in bright sunlight. The rest of its specs are very similar to other Android Wear devices, including: 512MB of RAM, 4GB of storage, waterproof IP68 (one meter of water for 30 minutes), and various movement sensors. No heart rate monitor though.
The Sony Smartwatch 3 will cost $249, and can be preordered through Verizon right now. Google says it will be adding preorders on Google Play soon. The Smarwatch 3 will start shipping on October 30th.
